Super Smash Bros. & Knuckles... & Knuckles... & Knuckles...
Super Smash Bros. & Knuckles… & Knuckles… & Knuckles…

As revealed yesterday, the eagerly anticipated Tails Mii Gunner costume and Knuckles Mii Brawler costume are arriving in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS later this week (specifically, Wednesday in the US/Japan and Thursday in Europe). To celebrate, Nintendo has released a whole smorgasbord of delightful new screenshots showing off the two new Sonic themed outfits in action!

Check out the gallery of Wii U and 3DS screens below to get a taste of how Sonic’s two best buddies will look when they square off against gaming’s biggest icons in Nintendo’s all-star brawler:

Each costume will individually cost €0.79/£0.69 to download for one version of the game, or €1.19/£1.09 for both the Wii U and 3DS versions.

Will you be downloading either the Tails or Knuckles costumes (or both!) later this week for a true Super Smash Sonic Heroes showdown? Be sure to let us know in the comments!

Fly Solo in Tails Adventure: Now on Nintendo 3DS eShop!

Today truly does mark the day of the second fiddle for Nintendo gamers – not only has Mario’s lankier brother jumped into the spotlight with the release of New Super Luigi U on Wii U, but now Sonic’s twin-tailed sidekick has seen a re-release of one of his solo Game Gear outings on Nintendo 3DS. That’s right, folks… Tails Adventure is back!

Tails Adventure was the second Tails game to hit the SEGA Game Gear handheld back in the day and sees Miles Prower traversing an island (referred to as “Cocoa Island” in Japan and “Tails Island” in the West) in order to stop an army of robotic birds known as the Battle Kukku Army. It’s a slower, more RPG-like experience with lots of item collecting and backtracking, so don’t go into this one expecting a high speed Sonic platformer! Using his flying ability and weapons like hammers, remote-controlled robots, and bombs (and we mean lots of bombs!), Tails has to make his way through several puzzles to save the day.

The game is now available to download from the Nintendo 3DS eShop in Europe for £4.49.
